And It's Off!

Hecate's Own is out of the Meat Grinder and has been sent to my Beta readers! Dusty's already given it a once over, and he liked the core story, so that's good. He had a couple issues he wants to go back and double-check so I expect I'll be getting notes from him this afternoon.

Yes, my husband is one of my Beta readers. I told you guys: he's my hero, my Mr. Happily-Ever-After. (And if my mom is reading this right now, she probably threw up a little in her mouth. She thinks we're still sticky sweet even after almost twenty years together.)

I've begun to work on Norwegian Wood, and it is good. The song that the title came from has kind of stuck in my head every morning for about a week now, letting me know it was time to wrap up Hecate's Own and get on with Fen and Martine. Can you say "vegetarian vampire"?

I knew you could.

So hopefully in about a week or two I'll be turning Zach and Jo in to Liquid Silver Books! And for everyone who have been pining for Ben and Dave of the Poconos Pack: They're on the agenda for right after I finish Norwegian Wood.

I have a plan. Be afraid.

Happy Friday everyone!
